Channing School seeks to recognise achievement in many ways.
One way in which this can be achieved is through making financial awards to pupils and parents to ensure that girls of exceptional ability and potential can benefit from a Channing education. Whilst the school is committed to ensuring that financial awards are increasingly made on the basis of financial circumstances, the Headmistress also has the discretion to make academic awards of up to 10% of tuition fees on entry to the Senior School or at any point during a pupil’s career at Channing should she consider it appropriate.
Year 7 (11+) Academic Scholarship
All candidates who sit the 11+ entrance examination are automatically considered for a Year 7 Academic Scholarship based on their scores. They do not need to make a separate application. If a scholarship is to be awarded, the family are informed of this if the child is made an offer for Year 7 at Channing.
Sixth Form (16+) Academic Scholarship
To be considered for a Sixth Form Academic Scholarship candidates (including current Year 11 Channing pupils) must sit the Sixth Form Academic Scholarship exam. For 2024 entry, the Academic Scholarship exam takes place on Tuesday 14 November 2023 from 4pm – 5pm in Channing. The Scholarship paper is set by the school and past papers will not be shared.
The exam consists of a general paper (critical thinking, logic and reasoning) and one subject paper of your child’s choice, ideally in one A Level they will study in Sixth Form. You will find a list of A level subjects offered by Channing HERE.
Please inform the admissions office (email@example.com) if you would like your daughter to sit the scholarship paper and which subject paper your child prefers.
Music Scholarships are available to applicants of exceptional ability and potential. These include free tuition in school for one instrument. All applicants who meet the published criteria will be invited to an audition in January. Scholarships are awarded for up to 50% of the tuition fees as a result of the audition and qualification in the academic examination.
